As a shopper who always reads reviews I will give you the info that I look for. The rug is thick and heavy. The color is also true to the picture on the web site. A little lighter than navy but darker than a royal. Also the accent stripes are a good white. I purchased to go on a screened porch that has white brick sides and white furniture. The accent stripes work well with white. The rug is a good, solid quality for outdoor use. It arrived in perfect condition approx one week after order date.
